The Operation Lafiya Dole combined troops of 82 Division Task Force Brigade and 158 Task Force Battalion conducting Counter Insurgency Operations in North Eastern Nigeria, on Friday had an encounter with Boko Haram insurgents in Gudumbali in Guzamala Local Government Area of Borno state.
The director Army public relations Brig Gen. Texas Chukwu said the encounter took place when the insurgents attacked the community, set some buildings ablaze and quickly withdrew from the community.
Chukwu however, said no human casualty was recorded in the encounter; adding that the troops have regrouped and normalcy have been restored.
This is contrary to reports that the Terrorists recaptured Gudumbali with troops and civilians seeking refuge at Gubio.
The director said the troops have also been reinforced with additional troops to dominate the general area.
